Anthony Joshua To Retire From Active Sport In 5 Years

Anthony Joshua on retirement: “I’m always planning ahead so I’m coming towards the end of my career.” The 31-year-old world champion is set to face Tyson Fury in a massive unification clash this year.

Joshua admits he is “coming towards the end of my career” and has hinted that he will have a maximum of “five years left” in the sport before retiring.

The 31-year-old world heavyweight champion could be approaching the most significant period of his career, with ongoing negotiations about two massive unification fights against Tyson Fury in 2021. Since making his pro debut in 2013, Joshua has become a two-time champion, having regained his WBA, IBF and WBO titles in a 2019 rematch with Andy Ruiz Jr before defending them with a knockout win over Kubrat Pulev last month.
